Rice Krispies Treats are classic for a reason. They are fast and simple to make, often even very young kids can learn to make them on their own. Ingredients are inexpensive and easily acquired. And let’s be honest, they are delicious in a perfectly nostalgic way, crispy and sticky and sweet. The originals can be amped up with peanut butter or chocolate or different cereals, but they do seem to stay a bit of a childhood taste memory.
For this week’s edition of #CookWithConfidence, I decided to keep it simple with homemade rice krispy treats. The all-time favorite childhood treat is commonly made by binding rice cereal using a combination of butter and melted marshmallows, but countless recipe variations exist. Because I’m a lover of all things peanut butter, I chose to make these Peanut Butter Crispy Rice Treats.
